Case study 11 – Collaboration with universities to strengthen local resilience in Nicaragua

For the implementation of the Program for Disaster Risk Management in the Face of Climate Change in Nicaragua, Partners for Resilience (PfR) worked with the academic sector in the department of Madriz and in the Northern Caribbean Coast Autonomous Region (RACCN). The involvement of universities was a key factor in being able to offer diploma courses to decision makers and community leaders and for conducting studies related to local development. The Program also contributed to disaster risk reduction (DRR), climate change adaptation (CCA) and ecosystem management and restoration (EMR) being included in the academic curriculum.
